Our model of Knowledge Communities is built upon 3 modes of constructing and sharing knowledge: Conferences, Publications, Community. To learn more about each of these domains, click the link or choose the relevant tab from the top navigation bar.
Proposals for presentations at the annual conference are accepted throughout the year, but specific deadlines do carry certain benefits. The content of the proposal should address the topics outlined in the Proposal Guidelines, fit into one of the presentation types, and include all requested biographical information. Proposals for “virtual presentations” may also be submitted by those who wish to participate in the community but are unable to attend the conference in person. Go to Submitting Your Work: Conference Presentations for information, timelines, and step-by-step instructions.
In our Knowledge Communities model, conference proposals and journal articles, while different in form, are inherently linked in that verbal presentations at conferences may be transformed into written papers, which then become the basis for formal, citable publications. All conference participants—onsite and virtual—are invited to submit a complete academic paper based on their presentation for peer-review and possible publication in the journal. Go to Submitting Your Work: Journal Articles to learn more about this process.
